MSAC Governance Policies & Procedures

Advisory Council Election Season Begins

Are you an MSAC member who would like to help determine how the Center operates? This is your chance!  The MSAC Advisory Council (AC) meets every other month with the MSAC Director to learn about new resources and opportunities and offer advice on how to address challenges that arise. Despite the pandemic, the AC has continued to meet, though mostly online. The beat goes on. Please consider joining this congenial, productive group. You can learn about AC expectations from the Governance Policies and Procedures or by asking MSAC to send it to you. If you would like to talk to an AC member about how the Council works, please contact the office. The March newsletter has two items about the Advisory Council starting on p. 1 and 3.
